  • You can change the textbox's wrap format, to 'in front', for example. You might also want to make it borderless (no outline) and transparent (no fill), so none of it obscures the freeform object.

  • Hi FZRR,
    Could you share more information with us? Or you can upload the screenshot to OneDrive and share the picture link here.

    If you want to insert text into freeform shape, there are two methods:
    1. Insert a textbox on the freeform shape, edit text in the textbox.
    2. Select the freeform shape, and right-click > Add text.

    If there is anything I can do for you regarding this issue, feel free to post back.
    Best regards,

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.
